Dragon Clan of Yden

DCOYCOVERSGRFinal4Before I began writing historical romance, I wrote fantasy. One of my dragon trilogies was released under the label of a small publisher, but as the contract for each book expires, I get the publishing rights back.

The second book in the trilogy will be re-released on March 29. As I was polishing the book up this past month, I was fleshing it out here and there…and ended up adding over 5,000 words. Dragon Clan of Yden (Book Two) has a new cover and a new title, but just as much dragon attitude. If you like young adult stories featuring dragons, magic, wizardry, and combat, this one is for you.  ~ Suzanne

Excerpt:

At the grotto, a waterfall flowed down the side of a cliff taller than the goal post at a football stadium. Off to one side, a sharply sloped, smooth section of rock formed a natural slide. Tall trees ringed the grotto, dripping with the kind of vines exactly right for swinging from boulders into the crystal clear pool. Jon spotted Max sunning himself on a flat rock. Shirtless again, the Unicorn Clan wizard wore only swim trunks and a grin. His long, lean muscles rippled as he stretched.

“You get the impression he’s in love with himself?” Jon muttered.

“Hopefully it’s only a crush,” Sela whispered.

As he drew closer, Jon returned Max’s smirk. “Rib feeling better?”

“Your attitude won’t quit.”

“Anytime you want to adjust it, let me know.”

LGWOYSGRBegin at the beginning with Book One: The Last Great Wizard of Yden.

Jon Hansen always thought his father’s tales about the magical planet of Yden were fiction. When his father is kidnapped by an evil wizard, however, Jon is forced to dig deeper. His investigation uncovers magical artifacts that will unlock another dimension—if only he can gather his courage to make the journey. On his quest to Yden, Jon encounters wizards, Cyclopes, and a warlord who seem to want him dead. Fortunately, he’s got friends by his side, as well as the ability to draw things to life. Can he and his friends defeat the most evil wizard the magical world has ever known, or will Jon become the latest addition to the Wolf Clan wizard’s gruesome collection of trophies? Buy HERE.

New Release • Rake & Romance

PhotoFunia-1453990546It may be winter, but you can still warm the cockles of your heart with a sweet Victorian romance. Today, Rake & Romance is making its debut! It’s a sequel to Ruse & Romance, of course, but since I needed to mix things up a bit, I brought in three characters from Texas. The book is set in 1845, when Texas was still a sovereign entity. By December 29, 1845, the annexation of the Republic by the U.S. took effect. Nevertheless, Texas had its own culture, and residents of the Republic were known as Texians (with an i).

These new characters, Lord Horatio, his son Cody, and daughter Stephanie, were all born in England. Because Horatio was the second son of a marquess, and therefore not in line to inherit the title, he traveled overseas and managed to amass a fortune. Although Lord Horatio’s title is merely a courtesy, he’s the white sheep of the family. His brother, William, lacks a moral compass, and has passed his values to his wicked son, Zachary Gryphon (introduced in Ruse & Romance).

By the time Rake & Romance takes place, Lord Zachary Gryphon has dropped out of polite society, but his scandalous reputation remains. When Horatio Gryphon and his family return to England to find a husband for Stephanie, the waters are muddied. Worse, Cody and his cousin Zachary bear an uncanny resemblance to one another, and he finds himself unfairly painted by the same brush.

Enter sweet Juliet Beaucroft, who is just finishing her first Season. She’s widely expected to announce her engagement to stately, steady Lord Elbourne, but instead faces disappointment. The earl’s father finds himself in financial difficulty, and must seek an heiress for his son. If Juliet doesn’t marry Lord Elbourne, however, society may very well laugh at the snub and assume she’s on the shelf forever. Could a ruse be the answer?

As you can well imagine, there’s plenty of conflict to keep the pages turning! Rake & Romance is specially priced at $0.99 for its release weekend, and Ruse & Romance is free on Friday, January 29th! If you enjoy the series, please leave a few kind words on Amazon for me! Good reviews always buoy my spirits and make me feel like writing even more. ~ Suzanne

 

 

#Freebie • The Mannequin

sgrmannequin6x9

The Mannequin is a Kindle freebie from Sunday, December 27, through Tuesday, December 29. Although the novel is a sweet Victorian romance, I took inspiration from Beauty & the Beast and Cinderella, as well as classic literature and fairy-tales.

Blurb: When she was a poor country girl in a hand-me-down dress, Rosamund saved the Duke of Swanhaven from the brink of despair…only to fall in love with him. Now a celebrated mannequin for an exclusive London dressmaker, her glamorous life is empty without the man to whom she gave her heart. Can a beastly duke and a beautiful mannequin ever find a fairy-tale ending?

Pick up The Mannequin HERE, and tell a friend!
